Robert "Bob" Biggs, 87, passed away Thursday, June 24, 2021, while at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes. Bob was born in Vincennes on October 21, 1933, to the late Emmett and Hellen (Keller) Biggs. Bob married Doris (Bowman) Biggs, and she survives.
A life-long farmer, Bob was happiest on his tractor working the land. He was a Willie Nelson fan, and was known to leave the farm long enough to attend one of Willie's concerts at the Grand Ole Opry. A man of few words, Bob made many loyal friends; he was a member of the Harmony Society, the 40/8, and the American Legion. Bob served his country honorably as a paratrooper in the United States Air Force. He was a member of the St. Vincent Church in Vincennes.
Those who loved Bob and mourn his passing include his wife, Doris; daughter Mary Teising of Vincennes; and son Rodney Biggs of Vincennes. Coming from a large family Bob leaves behind a sister Rita Lavely of Vincennes; brothers: Don (Marie) Biggs, Richard (Jenny) Biggs of Vincennes; and Jerry (Pat) Biggs of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Bob had numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Those who preceded Bob in death include his parents, Emmett and Hellen Biggs, a son Ronald Eugene Biggs, and a grandson Mitch Montgomery. Two brothers preceded Bob in death: Ralph Biggs, and Norman Biggs.
